Sanlam Is an Impumelelo Top Empowered Company

By Ray-Ann Sedres, 25 May 2022

Sanlam is committed to authentic transformation and aims to be at the forefront of authentic transformation within the sector and to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. Celebrating 104 years of history this year, Sanlam is proud to be certified as a Top Empowered Company by Impumelelo Top Empowerment.

Celebrating 20 years of recognising major advancements towards boosting black businesses and being the directory for top black-owned and managed companies in South Africa, Impumelelo Top Empowerment is a well-respected transformation platform. “Success is not by accident, it takes dedication, focus and commitment. I believe this is the recipe that allows Sanlam to drive its socio-economic transformation results”, shares Ray-Ann Sedres, Head of Transformation.

To obtain this certification, organisations need to achieve a certain set of criteria. This includes, among others, black ownership credentials, recognition of BEE status levels and achieving minimum levels of performance for key BEE elements. Sanlam’s performance over the past few years has shown consistent improvement and has been able to, in some areas, exceed set criteria. A good example of this is how our black ownership level for the business is now at 56%, far exceeding the minimum requirements. We have made steady progress in all other elements, however, there is still more that can be done and Sanlam continues to be committed to driving this agenda.

Our transformation commitment is deeply rooted and informed by the universal insight that everyone deserves an equal chance and opportunity to live a better life as well as our brand ethos of empowering generations to be financially confident, secure and prosperous.

This certification is a proud achievement and a reminder that we are working hard to make diversity and inclusion a reality.
